vietnam, cuba, venezuela, ni caragua singapore and other countries and back in november secretary kerry said the monroe doctrine is dead. did he just waved the flag for russian expansionism? >> that is one of many that the administration has been waving. as clap to america the monroe doctrine is not popular and tell it is needed then they want to know where the united states is of central and south america are very worried about russian participation adventurism and a return of russian military shows that putin thinks he is achieving his objective to reestablish hegemony and he goes for world power status again. no doubt. lou: i don't know what status about obama of the secretary kerry suggested the united states was rejecting the monroe doctrine because it would concern our neighbors to the south. which is the exact opposite but which is to protect the hemisphere spinet the whole point is so unnecessary. putin plays a long -- losing and long term because there energy reserves are depleting in western siberia , he needs western technology to develop eastern siberia. if united states had
it a declaration of war. john kerry says the g8 countries are all ready to isolate russia. jennifer glasse is live in the capital of crimea now. earlier this morning you witnessed a pretty tense stands off have things calmed down at all since then? >> reporter: well, as darkness falls here, morgan in crimea, at that base about a 20-minute drive from here things were getting a little bit settled the two commanders had spoken to each other. the ukrainian commandser and russian commander had agreed to stand down their alert stat to us calm things down, they agreed the ukrainian had an armored vehicle with a gun pointed straight at -- straightforward. they asked to make the turan it's go a little bit hire so it wasn't pointed directly at them to calm things down, but the base is still surrounded by those russian forces. the russians were beding in for the night. they came in 100 trucks, they were building tents, things were quiet but the ukrainians standing guard say they won't give up their arms or the armored vehicles the russian said they wanted to come in and secure that base. but the ukrainian of
